John Wick: Chapter 4 is the latest film from Director Chad Stahelski. The cast that stood out was Keanu Reeves, Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Clancy Brown, the late Lance Reddick, Rina Sawayama. A lot of the action scenes were well choreographed. The art direction of the film was great.
I am mixed on Donnie Yen’s performance but in my honest opinion this has to do with the writing of his character. This film has a surprising amount of comedy. The length of the film is too long in my honest opinion. I am giving this film 8 stars out of 10.
The Lost King is the latest film from Oscar nominated Director Stephen Frears. The cast that stood out was Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins, Oscar nominee Steve Coogan, BAFTA nominee Mark Addy. This film will be divisive to many people about the conflicting reports on how Richard III of England body was found after being lost for over hundreds of years ago.
I am hopeful that Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins and BAFTA nominee Mark Addy will be nominated for Oscars for their performance in the film. In my honest opinion this should be nominated for Oscars for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. I am giving this film 8 stars out of 10.
A Snowy Day in Oakland is the latest film from Director Kim Bass. The cast that stood out was Nicole Ari Parker, Evan Ross, Arden Myrin, Roger Cross, Prime-Time Emmy Winner Loretta Devine, Reno Wilson, Kimberly Elise, Prime-Time Emmy nominee Deon Cole, Michael Jai White, Donis Leonard Jr.. The film needed one more rewrite on the ending besides that it’s a good film as a dramedy as well show the realistic fact that shows high rent is way too high for businesses and houses. I am giving this film 8 stars out of 10.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is the latest film from Director David F. Sandberg. The cast that stood out was Tony nominee Zachary Levi, Jack Dylan Grazer, Adam Brody, Golden Globe Winner Rachel Zegler, Ross Butler, D. J. Cotrona, Meagan Good, Faithe Herman, Prime-Time Emmy nominee Lucy Liu, Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou, Oscar Winner Dame Helen Mirren, Michael Gray. In my honest opinion the film had one of the best soundtracks of the year. I love the mythology part of the film.
The film’s effects were good. Sometimes the film does struggle with the darker themes as it attempts to balance it with fun themes that it has. This film does have connections to the LGBTQ+ community. I am letting people know that this film contains several flickering lights towards the end of the film which could cause people to have seizures that have photo sensitivity epilepsy.
In my honest opinion I am mixed on Grace Caroline Currey performance because did well as the non-superhero part of the film but I honestly believe even with the makeup and choreography did not look convincing enough to be super powered version like Michelle Borth portrayed it in the ending of the original Shazam film. I am going against most other film critics; I am giving this film 8 stars out of 10.
Unwelcome is the latest film from Director Jon Wright. The cast that stood out was Hannah John-Kamen, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell. This film has elements of Snow White, Gremlins, Straw Dogs, Critters, Leprechaun, Midsommar. The film could trigger for anyone who have been assaulted. This a great throwback to the films of 1980’s folklore horror film that is set in England and Ireland. I am going against most other film critics; I am giving this film 10 stars out of 10.
Scream VI is the latest films from Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. The cast that stood out was Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Roger L. Jackson, Liana Liberato, Jenna Ortega, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, Skeet Ulrich, Hayden Panettiere. This film is a Gorey meta horror film. The soundtrack of the film was great.
This film does have connections to the LGBTQ+ community. Just letting people know that this film contain several sequences of flickering lights that could cause people who have photosensitivity epilepsy to have seizures. Unfortunately the missing key of this film was that Neve Campbell is not in the film. The film needed a couple of more rewrites in my honest opinion. I am giving this film 8 stars out of 10.
65 Million Years Ago is the latest film from Directors Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. The cast that stood out was Oscar nominee Adam Driver, Ariana Greenblatt, Chloe Coleman, Nika King. This a good popcorn film. I am going against most other film critics; I am giving this film 8 stars out of 10.
The Quiet Girl is the full-length Directorial debut of Colm Bairéad. The cast that stood out was Catherine Clinch, Carrie Crowley, Andrew Bennett. The cinematography was excellently shot by Kate McCullough. This film is an international language film set in Ireland and is a period piece. I am going against most other film critics; I am giving this film 7 stars out of 10.
Champions is the solo Directorial debut of Bobby Farrelly. The cast that stood out was Kevin Iannucci, Joshua Felder, James Day Keith, Madison Tevlin, Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson, Prime-Time Emmy nominee Kaitlin Olson, Matt Cook, Mike Smith, Ernie Hudson. This a good adult themed film that is reminiscent of the Bad News Bear and The Way Back. In my honest opinion, I wish that comedy films would stop with the vomit gags. I am going against most other film critics; I am giving this film 7 stars out of 10.
The Magic Flute is the Directorial debut of Florian Sigl. The cast that stood out was Asha Banks, Stéfi Celma, Sabine Devieilhe, Morris Robinson, Niamh McCormack. Only half of the musical scenes were well shot. Unfortunately, much of the CGI was reminiscent of Mortal Kombat Annihilation style CGI. I am giving this film 2 and ¾ stars out of 10.
